When Liam Neeson’s first Taken film hit theaters, no one quite expected it to blow up (both figuratively and literally) as big as it did. The movie became an under-the-radar hit with solid reviews and a surprisingly impressive $226 million at the worldwide box office. The unexpected success led to two more films in the franchise and now the premise is being adapted for the small screen.
Bad news: Neeson will not be appearing in the Taken TV show.
Good news: we expect just as many dead terrorists/human traffickers/insert any type of bad guy here.
The TV show will serve as a prequel to the film franchise with star Clive Standen playing a younger version of Neeson’s Bryan Mills. One thing that bodes well for the Taken TV show is that it comes from the mind of creator Luc Besson. The visionary directory has been a bit hit or miss in his career, but we’re choosing to trust the guy who made Leon: The Professional and Lucy.
So, if you’re interested in checking out the Taken TV series, we’ve got all the viewing information you’ll need below.
